KUDOs to all the DOC CREWS out there

I know this forum has a lot of working professionals lurking around and I have been wanting to let these guys know how much I enjoy their work. I watched the premiere episode of "Deadliest Catch" and while I've done some pretty tough jobs in my 57-revolutions around the Sun, fishing the Bering Sea is the hardest and most dangerous job I've ever seen. I believe it's even more dangerous than working on the flight-deck of an Aircraft Carrier, which I believe, at one point was considered the 'most dangerous job'. Arguably, if fishing the Bering Sea is the 'most dangerous' on the planet, then, the second most 'dangerous' job must be the film crews working alongside the Fishermen capturing the images. My hats of to all of you fellows (Gals, too.). I was a lowly Sailor, in 1972 - 1980 stationed on a 'Destroyer Escort', a small ship (414'-6") as far as Navel warships go. I've been in the n. Atlantic during a hurricane and it was no pic-nick. As a Sailor, we were told if we fell overboard, we'd be dead from hypothermia before the ship could turn-around and rescue us from the water. Having to work outside in those conditions sucked!

I'm not discounting those documentary film makers that work in war zones, it is certainly a hugely dangerous and noble pursuit, and of course they also get my undying respect.

Best regards,

J.
